Birthday:  
Birthplace:   Nuneaton, Warwickshire, England, UK
Was President of the Dramatic Society at Oxford University. Performed National Service for two years in the Royal Air Force after Oxford. Started working for the BBC in 1963 as a trainee director. His film Cathy Come Home (1966) is said to have had a direct effect on laws pertaining to homelessness at the time of airing. Made a film funded by charity in 1971 called The Save the Children Fund Film but was hated so much, the charity tried to destroy the negatives. Refused to take an OBE bestowed upon him in 1977 because he disagreed with the ideals that were represented by the honour. Paid part of the money needed to allow WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange out on bail. Is a patron for homeless charities Doorway based in Nuneaton and Developing Health and Independence based in Bath. The Raindance Film Festival announced in 2016 that it would honour him with its inaugural Auteur Award for his achievements in film-making and contribution to the film industry. Was awarded an honorary doctorate by the Free University of Brussels in April 2018.
